Endovascular Stroke Therapy More Beneficial On-Site Than Off-Site
Published in Ischemia.
Functional outcomes and in-hospital mortality were better in patients with acute ischemic stroke who received on-site endovascular stroke therapy (EST), compared with those who received therapy following transfer to another site, according to study results published in JACC: Cardiovascular Interventions.
EST has an important role in modern acute ischemic stroke care. However, limited data exist on results of EST after transferring patients to receive therapy off-site. The goal of this study was to compare the outcomes of on-site vs off-site EST for patients with acute ischemic stroke.
